The producers of The Apprentice issued this press release yesterday:

Backstage at their sold out show at Rotterdam’s Ahoy Arena, Nick Carter was asked by the press about the Backstreet Boys recent guest appearance on the top rated US television show, THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE. “It was an amazing experience,” said Carter, “and such a great opportunity to raise money for all of the charities involved in the show. Although I have to tell you, we were really surprised at how many people took us seriously when we gave those difficult tasks to Trace Adkins, all in the good spirit of the show. We like the guy and thought it would be great to have some fun with him and add more excitement to their final challenge.”

"The Backstreet Boys are an international phenomenon and it was an honor to have them appear on The Celebrity Appprentice finale,” said Donald Trump. “The good natured conflict they had with Trace resulted in some of the show's funniest moments."

Meanwhile this year’s tour dates have been very successful for the boys. Highlights of this year’s tour include over 72,000 fans attending their stadium shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, their first time visiting new cities in China, and sold out shows in key markets like Holland and the new O2 Arena in London. Upcoming tour dates also include first time appearances in South Africa and Russia.
